    Just bought this tonight, I think it's a year old.
    The last one I popped had 2.012 on the cork.
    Can anyone help me date this bottle?

    I brought:

    Rising Tide Ursa Minor (incredible weizen stout)

    FBS 2012
    KBS 2012
    BCBS 2012

    I had (in addition to above):

    Home brewed chocolate porter, awesome
    Home brewed oatmeal stout
    Speedway 2011

    Cheers! Gotta love the holiday week!

    It is hard to get the new beers unless you order direct. The Anarchist Alchemist is absolutely stunning. I had a fresh Dogma recently and it was on form. San Diego Scotch is also impressive. Nice pick on the 5AM Saint...that is one of my go to beers.

    Finally got out of the shitty Golden Gate Bridge traffic. Tourists, stay home.
    Drain-poured a Gandhi Bot (sub par DIPA)
    Jaw Jacker-enjoyable and a step outside if my norm
    Expedition-very enjoyable. Glad I have a bunch more.
    Now on to Lagunitas Sucks, which sure as shit doesn't. This may be a new favorite!

    At 6% alcohol, this one is a bit hot. Still drinkable though... loads of sweet grain and fresh American hop flavors. Like no other beer I've had. Spectacular stuff!

    I can't believe everyone went to sleep early in my house.

    I knocked off my last Pliny and now I am having a Storm King.
    Haven't had the king in a while. It Is a very good stout.

    I am watching Jules Holland and waiting for Sinead O'Connor to do another song.
